What Are Active Release Techniques (ART)?
Active Release Techniques (ART) were developed and patented in the 1980s by Dr. P. Michael Leahy, a Doctor of Chiropractic medicine. This method focuses on soft tissues and its goal is to relieve localized pain, which can be caused by scar tissues, shortened muscles, and other injuries to tendons and nerves.
ART involves both the doctor who applies tension to the painful area and the patient who is instructed for specific movements to achieve the desired results. Chiropractors are the most common ART practitioners, but this method can also be integrated into physical therapy or athletic health care. Medical professionals can use ART for both diagnosis and treatment. Our resident chiropractor, Dr. Chris Komarnisky is a certified Full Body Active Release Techniques specialist since 2005. He can help tailor an ART treatment plan to your needs.
